What is the Cost of Methamphetamine Detox?
Making the decision to seek Methamphetamine detox treatment is the first step in recovery and moving past addiction. As you search for the right detox facility for you, one concern you may have is: what is the cost of Methamphetamine detox?
Insurance will Cover Methamphetamine Detox
While you are considering the cost of Methamphetamine detox, don’t forget that insurance will cover a portion (or all) of the detox treatment thanks to the Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. Under these laws, Methamphetamine addiction is considered a substance use disorder that is part of the 10 essential health benefits (whitehouse.gov). Insurance providers have to pay the same percentage for substance use treatment that they pay for other medical illnesses.
Inpatient Medical Methamphetamine Detox Treatment
Quitting Methamphetamine addiction is not easy, but it is possible. Depending on the severity of abuse, most individuals may begin to experience physical and psychological withdrawal side effects within a few hours after the last time the drug was used. An inpatient medical Methamphetamine detox treatment can help address the painful side effects from withdrawal and keep you comfortable throughout the process. The cost of Methamphetamine detox treatment will depend on the type of inpatient facility selected. For example detox facilities that are state and federally funded will cost considerably less than a private inpatient facility; however there are some drawbacks. Due to the fact that they are so cheap, there is usually a waiting list to get into a government funded inpatient detox facility and they tend to be over-crowded. Another factor to consider is the oral medication used throughout the process takes longer to offer relief from withdrawal. The cost of a government funded detox facility may cost a few hundred dollars; however the inability to keep patients comfortable usually results in them walking out and returning to drug use.
Private Inpatient Methamphetamine Detox Treatment
Most doctors recommend private IV therapy Methamphetamine detox treatment because it is more effective at controlling the painful withdrawal symptoms that keep people from completing detox. Unlike oral medications that take longer to act, IV therapy is immediate. Additionally, a private detox will allow you to detox in the comfort of a private room. A private inpatient Methamphetamine detox treatment that offers IV therapy detox may cost a thousand dollars a day – which after the insurance provider pays their portion, may leave you with a balance of a few hundred dollars or slightly more. However, if IV therapy can manage your withdrawal symptoms, keep you comfortable throughout the process and help you overcome Methamphetamine addiction, it is worth the cost. While there are some high end Methamphetamine detox treatments available – some costing $30,000 a day and up, it is important that the program you choose has a track record of success and is best suited to help you overcome Methamphetamine addiction.
